“Good coffee but average food”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We stopped here for a quick lunch, the service was good and we were shown to a table by a friendly waiter. A coffee and 2 sandwiches were ordered, while the coffee was good the sandwiches were just ok. The price was a tad on the high side for what was on offer and maybe we just ordered the wrong thing, I would re visit just for coffee alone

“Great Sunday Breakfast”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Walked into Elie's at 10am, the place was very busy.We were greated with a friendly smile and seated within 30 seconds. We had menu's and our coffee order taken straight away. Our food order was taken within 5 minutes. Coffee arrived shortly after, then our food arrived with about 8-10 minutes. Coffee was to die for, and our breakfast was just yummy. What a way to start the day! Prices reasonable, this cafe would put a lot of cafe's at home to shame. Bathurst should be proud! Well done Elie and team.

“Above average... worth a look.”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Second time I have been to Elie’s in around 2 years (I don’t get to Bathurst much). We are very early eaters, so were there soon after opening time with only two other tables occupied. Staff were accommodating, coffee was good, service was fast, prices were reasonable, the food was above average and they were very accommodating of my bub (half serve of raisin toast was offered, clean high chair – a huge bug bear with me – and no disapproving frowns when food inevitably ended up on the floor). I will very happily go back to Elie’s and recommend it to others.
